A girl displaced by violence wears a traditional Congolese hair style while standing near government soldiers in the village of Bangadi in northeastern Congo February 18, 2009. Tens of thousands of Congolese fled their villages as Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army rebels roaming the bush carried out massacres that have killed at least 1,200 Congolese civilians in reprisal attacks since the beginning of the multi-national offensive that began in late 2008, according to New York-based rights campaigner Human Rights Watch.
